What do you use for Spiderman webs or bricks?

I've read through many spidey build threads and I've seen a variety of materials used for web lines and brick work to give the suit that extra umph. Anything from mixtures of paint and latex or silicone to Tulip paint. Even different options of Tulip (puffy, slick, or matte). I'm sure there are even others.

What I wonder about is not only what you use, but how it works with the fabric. How well does it adhere to the fabric? Does it stretch well or crack? If it does stretch, how good is the rebound? Meaning, does it snap right back to shape after it stretches, or does it take a little longer than the lycra itself? Does it weigh the suit down or make it baggy? What kind of paint do you use when mixing silicone or latex?

I know, that's a lot of questions. But these are all things I've had on my mind to take into consideration. Leave whatever answers you want or even throw in some more questions.

These forums are very helpful and full of great people. I look forward to hearing about the different methods and results.

Tulip paint is very solid, it stretches like rubber, bends, doesnt rince off unless you use cleaning products. It doesnt crack either.

Tulip seems to be the way a lot of people go. It seems to work really well for just about anybody who uses it. I did a test with some Tulip slick on a scrap piece of milliskin lycra I have and it stretches very well and is really stuck down. The thing I noticed, though, was that it takes a few seconds to return to original size and shape once the fabric is relaxed. It seems like this would make the webs and such kind of pucker as you change positions. Is that an issue or does it not really effect the suit when you're wearing it?

Also please keep in mind that bricks in the TASM2 are black, not blue. It doesn't take away the blue and gives it a nice contrast. Otherwise, to my taste, it kinda loons like rubber.
